New 2024 Paris Olympics ticket sales
On Nov. 30 at 10 a.m. CET (which is 4 a.m. EST), 400,000 new tickets for the 2024 Paris Olympics will become available to purchase on a first-come, first-served basis. You will need to set up an account to make a purchase, so you might want to do that ahead of time to be ready.

Things to know about 2024 Paris Olympics tickets
In total, there will be 10 million tickets sold for 32 sports and 48 disciplines across more than 750 sessions at 37 competition venues. Paris 2024 is the only official ticketing site for the 2024 Paris Olympics.

Ticket prices vary by sport and type of session. You can expect to pay anywhere from 24 euros (about $26) to 280 euros (about $304). However, there may be higher prices for special events, such as medal ceremonies.

Should you secure tickets via the draw, you can access your tickets via a dedicated app. Tickets will be released closer to the start of the Olympic Games.

If you end up buying tickets, you may be able to use a credit card that rewards sporting events purchases. For example, the Capital One Savor Cash Rewards Credit Card earns 4% cash back on entertainment purchases.

Four years ago, Olympics tickets were coded as entertainment, tickets or sports tickets depending on the credit card, but be sure to contact your credit card company to confirm.

Otherwise, consider using a card that is good for everyday spending.

Bottom line
If you don’t yet have the tickets you want for the 2024 Paris Olympics, tomorrow is a great chance to grab some events you want to see in person. But, before you go all-in on planning a trip to Paris, be sure to familiarize yourself with hotel and lodging availability, as that can be quite difficult (and expensive) to reserve for Olympics dates.
